Summary

Celebration Confirmed Kamrooz Aram

Aram brings together patterns derived from eastern spiritual texts, fairground balloons, flowers and American eagles. His work explores national, religious and ideological systems of belief, and here he invites us to look for the deeper meanings of their symbols and iconography. The symmetry of the composition resembles flag design as well as geometric abstraction. Aram is exploring artistic movements as belief systems synonymous with religion and nationalism.
